TheraLife Eye Autoimmune Treatment for Sjogren’s. How it works

Sjogren’s syndrome is a particular form of autoimmune disease where one’s body defense mechanism (immune system) attacks one’s own tissue or organs. In the case of Sjogren’s syndrome, it attaches the organs that produce moisture (mucous membranes). The most common symptoms are dry eye and dry mouth. It can also affect other organs such as throat, lungs, kidney, liver, pancreas, central nervous system, gastrointestinal systems, joints, and blood vessels.

Other autoimmune diseases can also result in chronic dry eye including Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Grave’s Disease, Chrone’s Disease, and Fibromyalgia. Diagnosis for Sjorgren’s syndrome can be difficult due to similarities of disease symptoms.

For many, Sjogren’s syndrome related dry eye often results in eye ulcers, corneal abrasion, extreme fatigue and a great deal of pain. Some people with Sjögren’s syndrome also have other autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic sclerosis, vasculitis, mixed connective tissue disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, primary biliary cirrhosis, and chronic autoimmune hepatitis.. It is a debilitating disease for as many as 4 million Americans. Most Sjorgren’s patients are women.

Conventional therapy for Sjorgren’s chronic dry eye often includes eye drops – which make dry eye worse. Prescription drugs often include steroids which cannot be used continuously over long periods of time due to its toxic effects to liver and kidney.

How TheraLife Eye Autoimmune Formula Works

TheraLife Autoimmune Formula is a natural way to provide relief for both chronic dry eye, dry mouth and Sjorgren’s Syndrome. It works by:

1. Intracellular stimulation of tear glands (mybomian, lacrimal) to promote one’s glands to secret its own tears naturally and overcome issues with poor micro-circulation and membrane permeability. This is the key factor in Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome.

2. Natural ingredients that act as an immune suppressant (immune modulator)

3. Improve performance, endurance and energy levels.

4. No side effects of prescription drugs

5. Provides continuous daily support.

Blepharitis, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and Chronic Dry Eyes- Are They Related?

Blepharitis, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and chronic dry eye syndrome goes hand in hand.  It is one of the most difficult dry eye conditions to treat.

Here are the common symptoms of this condition.  Your eyes are constantly  dry, red, and you may have  crust build up (Blepharitis) on your eye lids.  You use eye drops, hot compress,  eye lid cleanser, and your eyes are still red, dry, crusty, and irritable. Your doctor may have told you that you have Blepharitis.

What is Blepharitis and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

Blepharitis is a recurring condition caused by inflammation of your eye lids.  Meibomian glands produce tear thickening agents so it does not evaporate quickly.   Meibomian gland clogging can cause eye infections and inflammation which exacerbates the dry eye symptoms.

Common causes of Blepharitis include:

  • Age
  • Allergy
  • Immune system problems -e.g. Sjogrens
  • Hormone changes
  • Bacteria- eye infections treated with antibiotics.
  • Dermatitis (rosacea, dandruff,) sometimes allergies.

Typical Treatments  for Blepharitis and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction are:

1. Eye lid cleaning

2. Wet hot compress to loosen meibomian gland clogging daily,  followed by gentle massage of both upper and lower eye lids.

3. Prescription antibiotic eye drop.

4. Steroid eye drops

How is Blepharitis and Meibomian Gland Dusfunction related to Dry Eye?

Symptoms of Blepharitis are very similar to chronic dry eye syndrome.  The symptoms are red, dry, blurry vision, watery, tired, light sensitivity and often wake up with a crusty eyelashes.

The most common cause of Blepharitis is Meibomian Gland Dysfuncton (MGD)- where the meibomian gland contains an abnormal or absent lipid. The abnormality destabilizes the tear film and can lead to evaporative dry eye –the root cause of Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome. While MGD can initially appear without inflammation, it will often progress to a more inflamed condition.

What does your eye care doctor look for?

During and exam, the eye specialist usually looks a the patient’s eyes through a slit lamp, a microscopy-like instrument, to view the eye in more detail. In people with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction( MGD), the doctor will see plugged glands and thickened secretions. The doctor also will see very rapid tear film breakup (Tear Breakup Test of 5 seconds or less), a tell tail sign of MGD.

The doctor often will press on the eyelid to “express” the secretions to determine if the glands are producing lipids, and see what it looks like. The doctor notes how easily the secretion comes out, and if the secretion is cloudy, with debris, and is thick, like toothpaste, in advanced cases.

Unfortunately, Blepharitis tends to recur. And this condition can be very frustrating!

How can TheraLife Eye Help?

TheraLife Eye is effective in reducing inflammation and stimulates tear flow for chronic dry eye relief. Often people with chronic dry eyes also have Blepharitis. Treating chronic dry eyes reduces the inflammation, and also helps to reduce the recurrence of blepharitis. It is highly recommended that those who have Blepharitis stay on TheraLife Eye long term to increase the rate of success.

Wrap Around Sunglasses for Dry Eyes

Most people with chronic dry eye syndrome are affected by sun, wind and glare.
We get many questions regarding the best sunglasses to wear to help protect eyes from exposure to sensitive elements and potential damage due to long-term exposure to sunlight. Excessive exposure to UV radiation and blue light from the sun can cause cataracts, contribute to the onset of retinal diseases such as macular degeneration, and cause skin cancer in the sensitive tissue surrounding one’s eyes. Radiation damage can even occur on cloudy days.

We recommend 100% UVA/UVB protecting wraparound glasses. The best lens color is amber, which also neutralizes blue light. Brown is the next best color.

Cheaper glasses may have a coating to block out UV light that can rub off overtime. Many people think it is the tint that helps protect one’s eyes, but it is actually the UV filter on, or in, the lens. So, if the filtering coating wears off, a dark lens actually increases pupil dilation, allowing more light to enter the eyes.

Computer Vision Syndrome and Dry Eyes? TheraLife Has The Answer!

Computer over use, more than 8 hours a day is very common these day.  You have been on the computer for hours! Your eyes are soar! They hurt!
You are already using eye drops- feels like you have to put them in every 10 minutes!.

Here are some simple suggestions to help relief dry eyes:

  1. Remember to blink often – program onto your computer to remind you to blink.
  2. Avoid bright fluorescent lights – wear a baseball cap to shield your eyes
  3. Rest your eyes 5 minutes every hour- look out the window at a far away place to relax your eyes.

Other tips include:

1. Drink plenty of water – we recommend at least 8 glasses per day. Fruit juices are fine. Avoid caffeine from coffee or soda. Drink decaffeinated coffee as an alternative

2. Exercise – at least three to four times per week. Exercises improve circulation and help deliver blood and nutrients to the eye.

3. Use humidifiers -either single portable units next to your desk or install it for your central air system. This is most helpful in winter or if you live in a dry, high altitude climate. Be sure to clean it often in order not to build up bacteria in the humidifier.

4. Wear wrap around sunglasses outdoors – dry eyes are often light and wind sensitive.

5. Avoid constant use of eye drops- do you put eye drops in your eyes, and they feel dry again in 10 minutes? Eye drops wash away lubricants that thicken your tears to prevent rapid evaporation. Long-term use can condition your eyes not to secret tears and exacerbate the dry eye condition.

6. Wear Night Time Moisture Googles.   Your eyelids maybe partially open during sleep – to test this, tape 2 wet cotton balls onto your eyes for one night and see if your dry eye condition improved when you wake up. If yes, you can buy a goggle to wear at night that contains moisture pads.  There are several optios available from the internet.

7. Use warm compress over your eyes- to improve circulation and allow you to relax. For more information.

8. Get enough sleep!

9. Computer use -schedule frequent breaks.  Take your eyes away from the computer and look out the window for 5 minutes in every hour.

Paleo Diet for Autoimmune Diseases

The Paleo diet is designed for people with autoimmune disorders, especially Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.  For those who want to try, please consult your physician.   This diet do not include any dairy, grains, nuts- which may make it difficult to stay on.  However, it maybe worth a try if you do have autoimmune disorders.

In addition, if you have an autoimmune condition, you should completely avoid:

So, just as some foods should be eliminated, there is also a focus on eating more of the following:

  • organ meat and offal (aim for 5 times per week, the more the better)–read more here.
  • fish and shellfish (wild is best, but farmed is fine) (aim for at least 3 times per week, the more the better)–read more here and here.
  • vegetables of all kinds, as much variety as possible and the whole rainbow, aim for 8-14 cups per day
    • Green vegetables
    • Colorful vegetables and fruit (red, purple, blue, yellow, orange, white)
    • Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, kale, turnips, arugula, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, watercress, mustard greens, etc.)
    • Sea vegetables (excluding algae like chlorella and spirulina which are immune stimulators)
  • quality meats (grass-fed, pasture-raised, wild as much as possible) (poultry in moderation due to high omega-6 content unless you are eating a ton of fish)
  • quality fats (pasture-raised/grass-fed animal fats [rendered or as part of your meat], fatty fish, olive, avocado, coconut, palm [not palm kernel])
  • fruit (keeping fructose intake between 10g and 20 g daily)
  • probiotic foods (fermented vegetables or fruit, kombucha, water kefir, coconut milk kefir, coconut milk yogurt, supplements)–read about them here and here.
  • glycine-rich foods (anything with connective tissue, joints or skin, organ meat, and bone broth

What kind of protective sunglasses is right for you?

The right pair of sunglasses can protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays (UV) and high-energy visible (HEV) light — light from the blue part of the spectrum, implicated in cataracts and retina damage.

Protective sunglasses also shield away wind and sunlight that makes dry eye symptoms worse.

You can find affordable and protective sunglasses by following these tips:

Evaluate claims. There are no federal standards for sunglasses, so labels are often inconsistent and confusing. A sticker that says “blocks UV” or “UV-absorbent” is meaningless because it doesn’t tell you how much UV is blocked. Choose sunglasses with stickers that claim to block a specific percentage of UV, such as “99% to 100% UV absorbent.”

Don’t be fooled. Darker lenses don’t mean better UV protection. Unless darker lenses are fabricated to block UV, they can be more harmful than wearing no sunglasses. That’s because they cause pupils to dilate, allowing more UV light into the eyes. Lenses should be dark enough so that you can’t see your eyes when looking in the mirror, but light enough to see curbs, stoplights and stairs.

Hit the right price point. It’s possible to find great, protective sunglasses in the $20 to $60 range. More expensive sunglasses are not necessarily better, but super-cheap sunglasses (less than $20) are less likely to offer adequate protection.

Omega 3 Fish Oil May help Wet Macular Degeneration.

A new study shows that omega-3 fatty acids could help with wet macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is expected to increase by 50% in older adults in industrialized countries by 2020. As the leading cause of vision loss in the elderly, it is a condition of serious significance. The macula is the central part of the retina. While it makes up only about 2% of the total retina, the brain devotes half of its visual processing network to information from the macula. It is responsible for central vision. The retina is a thin layer of nerves and visual receptors at the back of the eye that houses the rods and cones. It transmits visual signals to the brain. It is supported by the choroid, a network of blood vessels that feed and nourish the retina.

There are two forms of macular degeneration: wet and dry. In wet macular degeneration the chief cause of vision loss is the growth of new blood vessels (neovascularization) in the choroid. These new blood vessels then leak blood, adding debris that clouds the retina and sometimes results in a retinal detachment. One potential treatment for wet macular degeneration is reducing neovascularization (new blood vessels) with a series of injections such as Lucentis, Avestin or Eylea.

A new in vivo study shows that omega-3 fatty acids can radically reduce neovascularization in the choroid. The effect seems to be the result of metabolites of omega-3 fatty acids produced by the cytochrome P450 enzyme system. Mice fed omega-3′s had statistically significant lower rates of neovascularization. This offers promising hope for those suffering from wet macular degeneration, which comprises about 10% of all AMD cases.

Omega-3 fatty acids are found most plentifully in fish oil and krill oil, which is readily available in health food stores. There are vegetarian versions as well through algae sources.

Anti-Aging, Preserve and Improve Vision

It is believed that macular degeneration is a caused at least in part by accumulation of unwanted proteins, lipids and debris in the eye.

TheraLife MaculaEye formula works to improve the integrity of the retina membrane by preserving and improving permeability to optimize fluid and protein transport.

This facilitates the transport of unwanted lipids, proteins out of the eye in order to improve and prevent vision loss.

Azithromycin -Better Than Doxycycline for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction.

Azithromycin more effective than Doxycycline for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and Blepharitis.

There are several studies concerning the use of topical azithromycin in ocular surface diseases. . Dr. Gary Foulks and his group at the University of Louisville compared the effectiveness of topical azithromycin versus oral doxycycline therapy in meibomian gland dysfunction ( Belpharitis) Twenty-two subjects were treated with topical azithromucin solution for one month and seven subjects were treated with oral doxycycline for two months. The study concluded that while both topical azithromycin and oral doxycycline improved clinical signs and symptoms of meibomian gland dysfunction, the “response to azithromycin is more rapid and more robust than doxycycline.”

Yet another study from the Ohio State University School of Optometry evaluated the efficacy of a four-week treatment with topical 1.0% azithromycin solution versus rewetting drops in patients with contact lens related dry eye. An over two-hour improvement in comfortable contact lens wear time was noted throughout the four-week study period with azithromycin solution use.

Blepharitis being a chronic inflammation of the eye lid goes hand in hand with chronic dry eyes. Here is how TheraLife Eye can help!

Punctal Plugs – Dry Eye Treatment-

Punctal plugs may not work for everyone who has dry eyes.  Here are some of the reason you should be aware of before getting them instilled in your eyes.

What are Punctal Plugs?

Punctal plugs are designed to plug up the tear ducts to stop the drainage of tears into your sinus.  Punctal plugs are often used for people who do not respond to eye drops.

Tear ducts function by providing drainage for debris and bacteria to drain and clean the eye.

Possible outcomes by of punctal plugs:

1. When the tear ducts are plugged, the accumulation of bacteria and dirt increase the chances for eye infections

2. Some people experience irritation, swelling, due to allergic reactions to the punctal plug materials.

3. Punctal plugs can be removed by flushing with saline.

4. Punctal plugs often fall out by themselves.

Why punctal plugs do not always work for chronic dry eye?

For people with severe chronic dry eyes, there are simply not enough tears to shore up, therefore, punctal plugs are not enough!

How does your tear secretion glands work?

There are two important tear secretion glands that need to work simultaneously in order to relief dry eye symptoms.

1. Lacrimal gland which secretes tear volume.

2. Meibomian gland which secrete mucin, lipids, and proteins to thicken the tear.

Both glands must function together in order to provide tear with the right thickness (viscosity) and tear volume to provide comfort.

How can TheraLife Eye help?

TheraLife® Eye works by restoring normal cell functions to both lacrimal and meibomian glands.  The result is balanced, sustainable tears from your own eye to provide comfort all day long.   Learn more
